TWD Season Finale Will Complete Stories
The Walking Dead Spinoffs
In November, AMC will air the TWD Season Finale. This will mark the end of the original TV show, which has lasted 177 episodes and over ten years. It’s come a long way since its humble beginnings with Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln. With the end of the mainline show comes plenty more stories set in the Walking Dead universe. AMC will air many of these in 2023.
To start with, there’s the show focusing on Norman Reedus‘s character Daryl Dixon. Originally, this was going to star Melissa McBride‘s character Carol Peletier. However, McBride pulled out earlier this year because filming in Europe was “logistically untenable.” Still, it’s set to be one heck of a series!
Along with this Daryl spin-off, there’s also Isle of the Dead. This will feature Lauren Cohan‘s Maggie and Jeffrey Dean Morgan‘s Negan as they fight for survival in the Big Apple. Although it’s unclear if they’ll appear in the TWD Season Finale, we’re pretty sure it will happen.
Any fans of Rick Grimes have got some good news coming, too! Recently, AMC announced there would be an as-yet-untitled spinoff featuring Rick Grimes and Danai Gurira‘s character, Michonne. After long last, the pair will finally meet again. However, we’re unsure what impact this will have on the mainline show or the set of Walking Dead movies that AMC will release.
With all these spin-offs, many fans began asking if there would be room in the TWD Season Finale to close out all the storylines. It feels like the writers have to end a lot of plot threads while simultaneously leaving open enough for people to watch the various spinoffs that are headed in our direction. Don’t worry – Scott Gimple has got our backs with this one!
TWD Season Finale
At San Diego Comic-Con, Scott Gimple answered some of fans’ burning questions about the TWD Season Finale. Namely, he made it clear that the finale will give a proper ending to the show and not focus on making people watch the spinoffs. In his own words:
